Google Chrome, which is the most popular web browser on the web, will soon no longer be used to block annoying ads used by tens of millions of people. The change announced by Google in January, but more than once confirmed this week, a vast number of users have been upset that Chrome has already been replaced by a competing Firefox, where ad blocking will continue to operate on the same principle.

Google has been preparing a bundle of updates to the Chrome Web browser with the name Manifest V3 for some time. Updates will primarily change the way the extensions work, i.e., the programs and tools that can be upgraded with Chrome with additional features.

Mozilla, a developer of Firefox, was not only able to grab the market for the largest market share, but also published on the internet on Thursday how to make Chrome the easiest and fastest for Firefox:
